Welcome to the thread malumot.
I'm not sure why it took so long for your membership to be accepted.
I'm sorry for your delay.

Your statement about Los Angeles' urban renewel is definitely true.
I think one reason they chose the Bunker Hill area was that it was much cheaper
to tear down a victorian home or two (or three...), than some massive block sized office building.
I'm sure the land itself was cheaper as well.


-non sequitur-
Doesn't it seem much easier to romanticize about a missing building than one that survives.
I don't know why that is. (simple nostalgia perhaps)



Below: A night photo of Bunker Hill. The quality isn't great, but it does have a distinctive moody vibe.
I can't pinpoint this view. Anyone?

Again, welcome malumot.
